Truly Scrumptious Challenge #21 & Copic Colour Challenge #41!

***Scroll down for my Copic Colour Challenge card***
Hello! I hope you all are well! This is my fortnightly double challenge post so it's a long one! Firstly is my card for this fortnights Truly Scrumptious which is a sketch by the lovely Debbie and she's given us a fab extra challenge to include a Sparkle flourish. I've used this beautiful Flower Fairies stamp, I saw the show on Create & Craft and wanted the whole set, I've loved them since I was tiny! But I used my head instead of my heart and thought I would get most use out of the Christmas one! The flourish was made using one of the Bazill templates I got from Quixotic Paperie, I love it and you're sure to see a few more cards with this on! I hope you can join us for this fab sketch!

Images & sentiment - Flower Fairies 'Holly' from Crafters Companion
Colouring - Copics & Glamour Dust
Papers - Forever Friends 'Santa's on his way' paper pad
Ribbon - stash
Gems & gem template - Bazill

Now for my Copic Colour Challenge card, and it's my turn to choose the colours! I'm not quite sure why I picked autumnal colours when I struggle with these colours but this Greeting Farm digi stamp came to the rescue - she's beautiful! I've covered her in a wash of Sakura Stardust to give her a magical shimmer! (zoom in for a better look!) Then a few gems and swirly bits and I'm done! I have to say I'm quite pleased with how both of these came out! I've got a feeling it's because I've moved my craft stuff into the lounge on the dining table, I don't feel like I'm cooped away by myself and I've been able to spend a bit longer on my cards - who knows how long it'll last! Thanks for looking, I hope you like them!
